As you're using Ubuntu, you could grab the latest SLIME/Emacs packages,
using your favorite package manager.
As I never used Ubuntu, I searched on Google and found that SLIME
seems to be present only on edgy and feisty . Moreover, the
version is dated back to 20060925, so it's actually not the real
latest upstream version .

In case of packaged SLIME/Emacs, you just need to set the Emacs
`inferior-lisp-program' variable to your preferred Common Lisp
implementation (in case you have more than one installed, otherwise
the unique one is automatically chosen). Then starting SLIME on Emacs
with M-x slime will do the rest.

 this is mainly because Debian is near a release and thus packages
aren't updated as frequent as during a normal development cycle
(except to solve release critical bugs)
